5 common mistakes in 

firearms training

1. Taking Bad Advice If I had a dollar for every student I had to re-train because their friend the “gun expert” had taught them bad habits, I'd retire right now. Just because someone owns a lot of guns or is a police officer or veteran does not make them a firearms expert. Find competent, knowledgeable instructors. Check instructor's references. Talk with people who have taken the class you're thinking of attending. 2. Allowing Suboptimal Student-Teacher Ratio Teacher-to-student ratios of 30 to 1 might work in high school, but when you're paying for training that could save, or cost you your life, you deserve near 1 on 1 attention. If the class you're looking into has more than five or six students per instructor, you're probably not going to be training in a safe or effective learning environment. This doesn't mean you have to be in a four-student class, but if there are 20 or 30 students in the class should have a few assistant instructors or range safety officers present. 3. Getting the Wrong Training I have trained soldiers, police officers, and civilians. The bottom line is they use different tactics with different firearms to achieve different goals and therefore need different training. A police officer or civilian risks prison using tactics that are acceptable on the battlefield. A soldier would be unconcerned with civil lawsuits while returning enemy fire from 200 yards away. 4. Choosing the Wrong Gun or Caliber I'm often asked by husbands shopping in my store, “What's the best gun for my wife?” Well, Sir, how the heck would I know? There is no perfect gun, perfect caliber, or perfect combination. If there was we'd all have one. Determining the right gun requires assessment of factors including body size, hand size, experience, and most importantly, what you want to do with it. 5. Believing “This is the right way to do it” After you get some good quality professional instruction, go out and get some more - from someone else. Each skill you learn should be compared and contrasted with every other skill. Some will work better in certain situations. Some will work better for you personally. There is not one way to do it.  If an instructor tells you “this is how you will do this on my range,” respect his position and the fact that there may be a safety or liability issue involved. If an instructor tells you “this is the only way to do this,” find another trainer.

Let’s face it, you never want to shoot someone. Having a License to Carry is just like having insurance on you car or home. You hope you never need it today, tomorrow or next year.
